Original article [Sat 23rd Jul, 2022 03:45 BST]: One part of the Pokémon Trading Card game that might not always get as much appreciation as it deserves is the absolutely stunning artwork on each card. Different artists over the years have created plenty of magnificent and diverse imagery to keep each series feeling fresh.

To celebrate all of this stunning artwork, The Pokémon Company has announced it will be hosting a special online illustration exhibition from August 10th until October 22nd. You’ll be able to enjoy it from the comfort of your own home. It’ll include commentary and insights from 50 artists, including Megumi Mizutani and Akira Egawa. Here’s the rundown courtesy of the PR:

“The exhibition features three distinct themes that fans can explore: Life, History, and Artist. As indicated by the name, Life provides a glimpse of the habitats and routines of Pokémon; History traces the evolution of Pokémon TCG illustrations since their beginnings in 1996; and Artist shows the different approaches that artists take to capturing a single Pokémon.

“Want a closer look at the artwork? Select the card you’re interested in to better view details you might not previously have noticed. And to get a better understanding of what the artist was thinking when they created the card, the exhibition features comments from the creators who designed each piece on display. With 50 artists each commenting on one of their illustrations, it’s a rare and exciting opportunity to learn more about the talented minds behind the art. The exhibition includes pieces from artists including Megumi Mizutani, Akira Egawa, and many more.”

In related news, the Pokémon Trading Card Live beta went live in select locations around the globe earlier this week. This exhibition announcement also follows on from The Pokémon Company seeking someone to archive history. It seems it was able to fill the position in the end.
